wonderful co author who is a professor of political science and political philosophy at harvard many years ago when we were both at princeton university we taught a course on ethics and public policy and that led to lescol offering several books on the deliberation and democracy. >> in the spirit of compromise, president gutmann, you give to legislative examples, 1986 tax reform health care act. if you would, walk us through those. >> this is a tale of two compromises, and it begins with ronald reagan's presidency, where tax reform was a hugely important issue and hugely difficult issue to get done between republicans and democrats. those of us that live through the years recognize that people thought they were very polarized. tip o'neill was a staunch liberal democrat and ronald reagan's staunch republican. yes they crafted a bipartisan compromise with bill bradley and bob packwood being a part of the movers of this compromise. fast forward to the affordable care act it was arguably even more difficult to craft a compromise within one party, the democratic party because of the permanent c
about this law, because critics say it damages our ability to truly know, using serious science, the impact that guns have on public health and public safety, impeding research on gun safety, and preventing doctors from talking to patients about the potential health risks that come with gun ownership. add advocates who support the law say it protects the rights of gun owners. the national rifle association somehow managed to put this stealth legislation into president obama's health care reform bill. the question is how and why. and why, whatever you think of a law, one of the president's top allies, that's right, the president's ally, helped the nra get it passed. no surprise that there's a big dose of politics involved here. jim acosta tonight is keeping 'em honest. >> when president obama signed national health care reform into law, few in washington knew that buried in the legislation's more than 900 pages was a gift to the nation's powerful gun lobby. but here it is. a provision entitled "protection of second amendment rights." it states the government and health insurers c

and assault rifles and so on. they have had no mass shootings since. this is not rocket science. it's there to be had. the problem is that the nra, and i'm sure mr. jones is a big fan of theirs and probably helps them. >> he probably thinks they're way, way,way too much part of the establishment. he's way, way to the right of the nra. >> the political power the nra now wield means that politicians are too coward to say anything. i have people say to me, you're so brave. hot is brave about wanting to stop 20 more children getting murders? >> i don't think it's the nra power. it's people like us, not the two of us, but americans who care about guns aren't doing enough to make our case to the public. >> why not? >> because we think it's their issue. we have given that issue over to them because they have lobbyists they pay money. in the end, the people determine the outcome. and it's wrong, and it's racist and it's bigoted to say that guns are quintessentially american. they may represent a part of america, but my grandparents who came over from poland and live in brooklyn, new york, a

their name, will feel that love. so that's my challenge to everybody, and this is -- science shows if you look in the stars tonight and we live in manhattan so probably won't be able to see a star, but just imagine, when you look up and see a star, think to yourself that hundreds of billioned of light years away and many of those stars you're looking at are gone. they no longer exist. and the billions of years it's taken for the light to get to you. the star itself is gone. but the energy and light that a body gives off while it is alive goes on forever. generations unborn feel the warmth and light of that body. that's who we are. we may have a finite time on the earth but sever single day we should be determined to burn as bright, warm, and brilliant as possible, and that's the challenge, and ultimately the changemakers are never the elected officials, the names you read in history. this country has been fueled because of a conspiracy love, and even though we don't know the names of the people, they're the one that today we benefit, and the last thing i'll say, my father, who i talk abou
't supposed to happen. american political science is basically pluralist in nature that says that they are contending forces in society to counter big corporations whether it is the labor union or other kinds of institutions that counter that the power of the corporation. but corporations will always imagined to be governed by antitrust law. they were not supposed to control a handful, 64% of all of the wealth and the country. that kind of power just isn't imagined in spending billions of dollars a year lobbying congress. that wasn't imagined in american political science so i don't really think american political science has grappled with what we have now. and also our economic theory always presumes basically a market economy. he may have wanted to overthrow the competitive capitalism, but citigroup did. when and if you are too big to fail that basically means you are not a market anymore. you know, you are into something else. and i don't think an economic theory either there were any real answers or ideas for how you deal with the situation like this. so i think that we a
